What kind of religions would you like to see in-game?

Just wondering about which sort of religions people would choose and why they would choose that sort of religion.

    I would simply like to see some of the Pantheon, to be honest.

    Im personally hoping for dwarven gods in the vein of Clanggedin, Dumathoin, or Moradin from the D&D Forgotten Realms setting, or Brell Serilis from EverQuest. 

    Very traditional take on Dwarven gods, but hey, call me a traditionalist then. 
    I've always played my dwarven character in a rather devout way.

    If the gods are not traditional like that... then I guess I'll proceed as I see fit - but it would be nice to see a bit of lore on this sort of thing in the coming days!

    I'd like a god of balance. That'd probably be the one I go for but they need a good spread at least the "big three" mix of good/evil/neutral. Preferably a god of mischief too, for when I want to be a di- I mean pick on my friends and allies. =3

    I love lore on how certain races came into beings and their 'reason to be' from the Devine aspect.  It creates more attachment in fantasy games.

    I personally like premises where gods are simply beings that over time became really powerful, not necessarily the creators or avatars of certain elements/ideas. It gives this neat sort of idea that even though our characters wouldn't actually be able to achieve god status, it is something "possible" to one day grow into. It also allows for gods to have more human and relatable personalities if they were to ever show up in the story.

    Crom from Conan. Now thats a cool god, who creates people and lets them decide on how they want to live there lives.

    The Gods of Beer and Merriment!

    I don't care what kind of religions there are, as long as I can be a fanatic bloodthirsty and definetly not gay crusader looking to spread justice.

    I wouldn't mind an anti-gods religion. One that aims to weaken the God's hold on the inhabitants of the world of Ashes. 
  • Options

    I'm guessing an Underrealm type of religion would breed some antagonistic dynamic events that could seek to harm our way of life in the game. That could work. It all adds to the lore and immersion so the more the merrier.

    I don't want to jump in and speculate much about the Gods at this time because we know so little. We don't know if they are racial Gods from our own worlds or  gods of the "ashes" world yet. 
    Like it could be one for each race then 2 for Tulnar somehow but I can't work out how they would have a racial God since they seem to be a result of millennia of mutation in the "ashes" world underground.
    Each race has a different belief/mannerism so that can easily be due to their god xD maybe one of or two of the races believe in multiple Gods? Maybe Vek have 3 Gods and the rest have 1 and Tulnar none - but adopt the others Gods?
    i need more lore aha

    Wouldn't a "gay crusader" want to spread something besides justice...?

    If there is not a god of peasents where sandles are obligatory, I wont be able to take this religion thing seriously.

    I believe this is the intention.

    The sandals represents humility. So that religion will be like the Sparrow movement in the game of thrones.

    The world we're coming from didn't have magic, so we can be quite sure it's going to be the gods of the world of Ashes.

    I'd probably prefer the gods not to be humanoid in appearance. So that we don't have a god that looks like a Human or a god that looks like an Elf.
    Dragons, chimeras, a Great Tree for Nature.
    That way, all of the races can have equal attachments to each god rather than Humans having a special attachment to a god the Human looking god or Dwarves having a special attachment to Dwarf looking god.
    If the devs do go that route, I hope we get a god of Beauty that looks like a Tulnar. 

    If if we do have a humanoid god of Travel, it should definitely be a male wearing sandals. Good call, PJ!

    I hope for a varied Pantheon, in the line of D&D with good, neutral and evil gods.
    Maybe more Good and neutrals though, there is enough negativity in the world  already. 

    Hope to see the following theme: Love/Joy, Nature, Water/Sea, Light, Night/Moon, Knowledge, Fire, Ice, War/Anger, Dark/Death
  • Options
    Basically what I want: https://dnd-wiki.org/wiki/Canon:Majere

    I want a Pantheon where all gods act as a unity of the forces, Both guiding the people/players while staying completely impartial. 
    Where as most gods get involved and simply existing becomes an issue when you have proc chance to hope on, i like the passive aid of a wise semi-benevolent entity.

    TL:DR (really?) then... I WANT THE GODS TO STAY OUT OF MY BUSINESS.
    Also cry for me if I get a booboo

    Those are great portfolios!
    My expectation, though is that they will all be neutral.
    Ashes doesn't have fixed good and evil. That will be based on individual people.
    Corruption will be a factor, so we'll have to see how corruption will affect each portfolio.

    It'll be interesting to see if corruption from PKing will be tied in to game lore. My initial understanding is that it won't and is just a term used to describe a game mechanic.

    Very good point actually. In a game such as Ashes of Creation, neutrality would be a lot better. That would actually allow players to have another depth of impact and see even more differences between servers depending of players actions and choices.

    Well... the religion I'd like to see and choose has to meet 2 requirements:
    1.  There should be a goddess, not a god. I'm tired that god is considered a man almost everywhere in the word, so I'd like to have it different in game.
    2. The religion should be about luck. Believing in luck, good favour etc. 

    I very much liked Tymora in Neverwinter -> Lady Luck. And every time I open chests I like to say things like "Goddess Random, please give me good loot" etc. xD I'd like Goddess Random to be actuall Goddess :D

    I'm relatively sure that there will be female gods or goddesses. 

    I always thought that they called it lady luck because of the sterotype that females are fickle minded and/or not something that can easily be understood. It would be nice to mix things up now and then, a female goddess of war, male god of fertility (haha).

    Humility, but with a sense of practicality. The nights can get cold sometimes.

    before i started typing this but after reading your comment I had this ache in m mind that I hate the idea that a god MUST be a male or female god or goddess, but then you brought up my Tymora.
    I'm an avid D&D player and glad that so many bring it up. I'm more of a Majere follower but most of my characters have had... "affairs" with Tymora.

    I like gods like Hiddukel in concept. They are literally embodied as a broken/fracture dragon/lizard scale.

    Well the gods in the fantasy novels (especially those in the world of DnD) are actually just really really powerful beings that transcended the realm to attain further power. But they had flaws, strengths personality and ambition (including alignments and classes, levels and HP if you read the pen and paper compendiums) just like a normal character. (With power levels beyond that of normal people of course :D)

    So it's kinda normal that they could have male or female forms. Or even some shapeless god that can easily swap between forms and/or gender. 

    Isn't the broken scale just Hiddukel's symbol? Its been quire a number of years since I've flipped through a PnP reference book.
